CHARLES TOWN - A Berkeley County woman has filed a suit against a Pennsylvania company seeking $1 million after she was left permanently disabled following a wreck with one of their employees.
Sharon Clark, on behalf of herself and her children, filed a suit against Columbia Ancillary Services and Joseph Massaro on Feb. 1 in Jefferson Circuit Court.
On Feb. 3, 2005, Massaro was making deliveries for the company. The suit says that while Massaro was working, he caused a wreck with a vehicle in which Clark was a passenger.
As a result of the wreck, Clark sustained brain and orthopedic injuries, which leaves her permanently disabled, the suit says. Also as a result of the wreck, Clark's children have suffered and will lose parental consortium.
Clark has incurred $247,000 of medical bills, and will continue to need medical care. Therefore, she seeks $1 million to help pay past and future medical bills, plus court costs.
Lawrence M. Schultz represents Clark.
